What's New in Version 3.2.1
• Bug fixes
The full Facebook app is very data hungry and can be quite distracting. I was hoping that this app: 'Facebook Messenger' would be a more streamlined, simple way of ensuring I get messages when I want them, without draining all my data, without being distracted during work hours, and without having to immerse myself in the world of Facebook.
The synced contacts function is seamless and this app might be OK, but IMO everything is overshadowed by the desperate attempts to force you to switch on notifications. Every time I open the app there is a pop up trying to force me to switch on all the notification badges and whistles and BS***. There is no way of turning of notifications and the app tries to make you turn on all notifications. I have deleted it.
Sort this app OUT PLZ!!
I would like to have my whole facebook friends list on messenger not just friends who have messenger, because I can't remember all 450 friends of the top of my head. I need more sticker packs please. I Like them SO much. Also, why has the LIKE/THUMBS UP button been removed in this update. It's disappointing! I Liked it. Now, I can't like my own comment and my comments are GOOD!! By the way I Like all the sound effects. Also, the In-app sound Does NOT WORK at all! And some notifications don't work especially with messages sent from the web. Can you please fix this. I love facebook messenger. Please fix it in the next update and it will be 5 stars. Thank you!
Basic function works well
FB messenger is a striped down version of Yahoo Messenger or Skype. Works well, simple to use but lacks the cooler functions of the other two main contenders for this space. The up side is nothing to load as it inherits all your FB friends by default so you hit the ground running.
